Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:14pm glenn:

Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:15pm Uncle Michael:

I think the vocals suffer in the stereo mix.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:18pm glenn:

Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:19pm Uncle Michael:

Indeed he was.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:20pm glenn:

Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:21pm Uncle Michael:

it was the comma
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:24pm ndbob:

I looked for a long time for the Mark Wirtz (Keith West) 45
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:30pm Uncle Michael:

I think the Keith West single is probably the superior version. I'll play some of the other songs from that on a future show.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 7:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Where's the Dolby Surround 5.1 of Sinatra?

He was a local teevee personality here many years before WKRP.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:25pm still b/p:

No! Jesse rules. Jump's a pale inheritor.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:25pm Uncle Michael:

I was trying not to be judgmental.

Jesse's equivalent of Bond cocktail line, from Harvey: "You make a great egg and onion, kid. A great egg and onion."
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:35pm glenn:

Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

this is crazier than "calling occupants of interplanetary craft" (wfmu.org...)
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:39pm Uncle Michael:

Kenzo...I will play the Carpenter's version of that and no other.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:40pm glenn:

Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:51pm Uncle Michael:

I apologize, Hyde! Nope.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:52pm Uncle Michael:

Good point, Kenzo.
Avatar Tue. 11/12/13 8:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

You're really getting me in the mood, UM! Now I'm going to have to use Jim Steinman rock opera on my next show (secretly tonight 11pm, unsecretly tomorrow 2pm).
